americans to pay a little more so that we can reduce the deficit and make investment in education, research, and guess what? a bunch of folks running for congress at the time said this is going to hurt the economy. this is going to kill job creation. if that argument sounds familiar, one of those candidates has to be running for president right now. it turns out his bath at their math was just as bad back then as it is now. by the end of bill clinton's second term, americans created 23 million new jobs. poverty was doubt and the deficit became the biggest surplus in history. colorado, we know the ideas. we know that our ideas work. we also know those that don't work. eight years after bill clinton left office. his policies were reversed. the wealthiest americans got tax breaks they did not need. companies enjoy tax breaks for shipping jobs overseas and insured that oil companies and wall street were given free rein. folks got to play by different set of rules than the rest of us. the result was falling in comes and record deficits and the slowest job growth in half a century. and an economi
, having voted for a trillion dollar deficits for the last four years, the largest, fastest debt increase in american history, can say that we have to control spending. you have done nothing to control spending over the last four years. with respect to cut, cap, and balance, it's amazing to me that the idea of cutting wasteful spending, capping the ability of congress to spend money we don't have, and balancing the budget is extreme. i think it would force congress to set priorities and stopped funding in things like solyndra and prioritize things like social security, medicare, and education. that's why i support a balanced budget amendment to the constitution. >> the race to succeed the retiring new mexico senator is just one of the key house, senate, and governor's races you can follow on c-span, c-span radio, and at c-span.org. >> more campaign 2012 coverage next, to milwaukee, wisconsin. where friday the former governor tommy thompson faced off against u.s. congresswoman tammy baldwin, in their third and final debate for the senate seat left open by retiring senator herb kohl. it is
in additional spending. lots of things, wanting to balance a budget, the annual deficit runs between one and $1.5 billion annually. i will start with you, bill. even with obama and his foreign policy, spending keeps going up. >> some folks don't talk about this in a great way. it is the kind of thing where most people -- [inaudible] you don't want to approach it strictly from a numbers basis. by the same token, throwing money at national security and problems it's not necessarily something that's going to solve the problem. >> unless you're ben bernanke. [laughter] does because it comes down the pipe -- [inaudible] right now we have a situation where the pentagon is saying that we don't need as much money as mitt romney is proposing. that it's not necessary, number one. they are not lugging the restraint, but there is a general attitude that we have to do more with less, let's put our heads together and figure out how to do that. a great panic that this is going to make us a third-rate military. so right now it seems like there is room to cut where you can. they have a stake in the matter to te
about what to do with budget deficits, and properly so. social security has not been a drain on the deficits, but there is a lot of misinformation about it. a lot of proposals floating around about privatizing so that people, especially younger people, into the market instead of having a government social safety net. what about social security that covers not only the elderly, but also those with dependent children can also security as well? putting money into private accounts to be invested by people, that is not going to be helpful to the vast majority of people. knowing where people stand on social security is very important. i want to raise an issue related to the courts. lilly ledbetter was such an explicit example of how courts can matter. and there are projections. it is hard to know what the tenure will be of the nine justices there are on the court right now. many predict that over time and in the next several years, there'll be one, two, or perhaps more vacancies on the supreme court. every vacancy makes a difference, especially given so many 5-4 decisions. who is i
on track, get things going again for starters and i'm worried about the budgets, the deficits. all my kids are in their 30s and we need the bubbling economy to move them along. >> a lot of people are hurting right now. but the president's ideology is what we need. >> i would say that the stimulus package was a really big success and i thought that, you know, i want government to play a role in our lives and i have a feeling that romney doesn't think that it should. >> let's met bring in jonathan althar. welcome to my home state. let's talk about the economy and we put it in the context of the latest poll. jonathan, is this an economy election in ohio? >> it always is. this is the heartland of america and even when the economy isn't as big as it is this year, in ohio in particular, it's about those working class voters and whether they think that one candidate or the other is providing them with a better future. and this has been a very stable race in ohio. largely because of the senator who is taking the podium soon, sherrod brown. this is one of the hidden stories of ohio. we've heard a l
and that there are -- i mean, in past budget deficits, big budget deals, there have been efforts made, successful efforts to either expand or protect low income programs. so it is possible to do without putting at risk the most vulnerable, the major deficit reduction packages of 1990, 1993 and 1997 all protect programs for low income americans as did the bowles-simpson proposal that was under consideration last summer that pushed out, that created the sequester. the resolution of which created the sequester and the current cliff that we're looking at. so i guess i would say i don't disagree that these programs are at risk, but it's important to know that lots of people are working to protect them, and that it is, certainly, these are not programs that are contributing to the long-term fiscal problems in the country, and so there's no reason why they can't be protected as part of the resolution. >> just to clarify, um, while the big programs like snap are not subject to sequester, you know, lie heap, wic which is the special nutrition program for women, infants and children, head start, there are a number
with some ideological policies that have been proven not to work, blow a hole in budget deficit, the economy collapses? i would like to ask -- if these policies that they want to implement are so great why didn't they work in the last 10 years? we have a lot more information in our society today. that was not that long ago when we experienced almost a complete economic collapse. the president has been able to help dig us out of the whole and get us moving in the right direction. there is a jobs bill that any economist who is being objective about it said we ill create over a million new jobs. get some money into the road and bridge projects that we need done in this country. make sure local governments are not laying off police, fire, and teachers. let's move the economy forward and create jobs. make investments into the new energy sector, research and development so we can create the jobs of the future. so places like ohio can keep going with what it is that we have been doing and build on the auto industry and build on the steel industry and get into the new economies. we are hitting a roa
deficit, invest in the skills of our people, invest in the ideas that we need to succeed in a new economy. and, at the time, back in the '90s, the republican congress and a senate candidate by the name of mitt romney said bill clinton's program would hurt the economy and kill jobs. sound familiar? turns out, his math back then was just as bad as it is now. because, by the end of president clinton's second term, we created 23 million new jobs, incomes were up, deficits were down. so, iowa, we know our ideas work. we've put them to the test. we also know that their ideas don't work. because they have been tested, also. in the eight years before i came into office, we've tried what they're selling. we've tried giving big tax cuts to the wealthiest of americans. we tried giving insurance companies and wall street a free license to do what they please. here's what we got. fallen incomes, record deficits, and an economic crisis we're still cleaning up after. so we know what works. we know what doesn't. now, governor romney, he's a very talented salesman. and, in this campaign, he's been working
cuts. but the deficit situation has now grown so bad that there's just no appetite for further borrowing at this time. >> maya macguineas runs the committee for a responsible federal budget, a bipartisan group that lobbies congress. she says uncertainty about how the government will deal with the deficit and the huge national debt is inhibiting employers from hiring. >> in the business world, there's over $2 trillion of cash sitting on the sidelines that could be used to grow the economy, make investments and create jobs. but it's not going to be invested until people know what to expect going forward in the economy. and that's why you need some kind of stability that would come from a big debt deal to help bring that about. >> in fact, unless there is a grand bargain on taxes and government spending by the end of the year, by some estimates, another 2 million people could lose their jobs beginning early next year. that's when the nation would drive off the so-called fiscal cliff. if that were to happen tax rates would go up for nearly every single income group. taxes on invest
budget this year was $1 trillion in deficits. the paul ryan budget which passed the u.s. house was $600 billion in deficit. i have the courage to submit a balanced budget if i'm elected president right after i'm inaugurated. secondly, i am for jobs and america for american citizens first, and the only candidate that has called for a near complete moritorium on green card admissions to the united states until unemployment is under 5%. it makes no sense to bring in so many foreign workers when our unemployment is so high in this country. [applause] secondly, third, we -- >> running low on time. >> we need the super p.a.c.sit n and political action committees, that would be one of the things to open up our country for greater process and greater voice by the people, and finally, we need term limits. it is time to do the best job in congress instead of the election and fund raiser. >> now an opening statement from governor johnson. >> the country is in really deep trouble. we should not bomb iran. [applause] we should end the war in afghanistan tomorrow. bring the troops home tomorrow. [che
stand here having voted for trillion dollar deficits for the last four years. the largest, fastest debt increase in american history and say that we have to control spending. you have done nothing to control spending of the last four years, and with respect to cuts, cap, and balance it is amazing to me also that the idea of cutting wasteful spending, capping the ability of congress to spend money we don't have and balancing the budget is extreme. i think it would force congress to set priorities and stop funding things like solyndra and prioritize things like social security, medicare, and education, and that is why i support a balanced budget amendment to the constitution. >> the race to succeed retiring new mexico senator is just one of the key house, said, and governors races you can follow on c-span, c-span radio, and at c-span.org / campaign 2012. >> more now from the reason for a moscow conference on the balance between government secrecy, transparency, and public access to information. these next panelists analyze the implications of various national security leaks, including mil
and deficit. we are going to have to ask some tough questions, and we cannot be playing politics. we have to have are robust plan. i would say around 4 trillion dollars closer to five trillion dollars, and there is a lot of work being done on this. i hope during a lame-duck we get a great start on it, because it is a huge issue for jobs. it is a huge issue for this country. ireland, greece, these are canaries in a mine shaft, and we need to move forward with a good policy that will impact a whole country and do it in a responsible way to move our economy forward, and that is the number one issue we need to work on to move our country forward. >> i thank you for the question. what i introduced was a balanced budget requirement for the federal government, but the first piece of legislation i will sponsor was to repeal obamacare. we need to put that money back into medicare. we cannot afford that. i would be proud to carry the legislation as i was proud to carry the legislation to fund obamacare, i would be proud to support legislation to repeal obamacare. >> speaking about president obama,
first order of business is going to be to get our deficits and debt under control. and the good thing is is that there's a forcing mechanism. the bush tax cuts end at the end of the year. we know that we've got the sequester looming that's taking a machete to something as opposed to a scalpel. and after the election, i think that both democrats and republicans have to step back and say, you know what? this is something that the country wants to solve. if i've won, then i believe that's a mandate for doing it in a balanced way. we've already made a tril dolli dollars worth of cuts. we can make cuts. look at how to deal with health care cots under medicare and medicare in a speeerious way, b we're going to also need revenue. we kind of settle on the big question, how much government are we going to have, and how are we going to pay for it, then a lot of the other stuff falls into place. >> can you get medicare done? >> i think we can. >> because republicans demagogue it. democrats demagogue it. everybody's demagogued it through the years. can you go to the republicans and say, guys, we'
ran deficits. when daniels came into power on budgets you helped to write, indiana was $700 million in debt and had a deficit of $820 million. the facts are stubborn things. i would like to know, how are we going to mature and preserve the fiscal integrity of indiana? >> if you would have spent the last 12 years in india rather than in congress you would know your budget has to be balanced. i balanced and produced balanced budgets. i find it almost laughable that a united states congressman would lecture anybody about fiscal responsibility. you voted not once, not twice but five times congressman. you voted and the results increased our deficit by 200 billion, billion with a b dollars. >> find a key governors races from across the country on c- span, c-span radio and c- span.org/campaign2012. host: we turn our attention now to the history of the october surprise. or events that happened before an election. our guest is joining us from their studios in washington you wrote that the october's surprise is a long story and mostly exaggerated history. so, why we have october surprises an
, asked the wealthiest americans to pay a little bit more. so we could reduce our deficit and invest in the skills and ideas of our people. and you know, at the time the republican congress and a senate candidate by the name of mitt romney vote -- they said that bill clinton's plan would hurt the economy and kill jobs. does that sound familiar? that's what they said. it turns out their math was just as bad back then as it is now. because -- because by the end of bill clinton's second term, america had created 23 million new jobs and a incomes were up and poverty was down, and our deficit had turned into a surplus. so wisconsin, we know what ideas work. we know our ideas work. and we know that their ideas don't work. we know it. and the reason we know it is we just tried it a few years ago. after bill clinton was out of office, they tried their ideas. we tried giving big tax cuts to the wealthiest americans. we tried giving insurance companies and wall street a free rein to do whatever they play. what we got is falling incomes, record deficits, slowest job growth in 50 years and an ec
term america created 23 million new jobs and incomes were up and poverty was down and our deficit became the biggest surplus in history. so, our ideas were tried and tested and they worked. their ideas were also tried and they didn't workout so well. remember, in the eight years after bill clinton left office they tried this top down economics, they tried this you're on your own economics. we tried giving big tax cuts to the wealtheist americans, we tried giving insurance companies and oil companies big wall street banks free license to do whatever they pleased. we tried it, and what did we get? we got falling incomes, record deficits, the slowest job growth in after a century and we ended up with a economic crisis that we've been cleaning up after ever since. [cheers and applause] >> so we tried our ideas, they worked. we tried their ideas, didn't work. now, governor romney, he's a very gifted salesman, so he's been trying in this campaign as hard as he can to repackage these ideas that didn't work, the very same policies that did not work, and he's trying to pretend that they ar
a -- >> deficit in two months, if we have a divided senate, it's the popular vote goes for governor romney and the president's reelected, who knows what will happen? >> gregg: the city will -- >> after this campaign, with doug and i have written about, after tearing the country apart in divide and conquer, the republican willingness to work with him is not high. >> he said this before which is important, is if we had that split ballot, in other words, they vote popular vote for romney, electoral vote puts obama over the top, or vice verse is a, doug is very smart about it. that this is going to delegit maze the winner. >> 40% of the people in -- >> we could have an election here where everybody agrees on the counting of the votes, unlike 2000, but had the system delegit maze with a fair vote. >> you're going to hear so much screaming and yelling about fraud. i'm going to tell you, if you have that outcome, second time around, 40% didn't believe the president was legitimate. >> gregg: we'll wait and see what happens on tuesday. i would guess ask you for your pre dicks burks i'm told you wil
to do with jobs but it does. it relates to debt and deficits which and that is if you're an entrepreneur thinking of risking your live ever life savings to start a business or build a factory, if you think america is on the road to greece or italy or spain, you're less likely to invest in america. and right now we spend a trillion more than we take in. it's bad for the economy. i think it's immoral for us to pass on debt like that to our kids and i will get america on track to a balanced budget. [applause] and number five, is to be a champion of small business, help small business grow and thrive. by the way, i didn't study small business alone. i've lived small business. i know how business works and i want to use that experience and that skill to help small businesses across the country. and there are a lot of ways to do that. let me mention just a couple. one relates to our taxes. do you realize that the taxes paid by a small business in america can be as high as 35%, that's the income tax and then if you add other taxes t payroll tax, the state income tax if you have one, real estate
if he wants to get deficit reduction out of raising taxes. president romney will go in the opposite direction. now, how do i feel about that? when i was mayor of new york city, i had a city that had a deficit of about $3 billion. we had 10.5% unemployment. we had 1.1 million people on welfare. we were coming to a -- what was described, one of the reasons i got elected. i got elected because the economy was horrible, had 2,000 murders in the two years before i ran for mayor so i got elected at the first republican in 25 years, first one to remain a republican in 50. [laughter] i got legislated with a very, very simple and direct campaign slogan. you can't do any worse. [laughter] tell me how i could make things worse? 3,000 murders? could unemployment go do 15%. maybe instead of 500,000 people moving out, 600,000 move out. give me a shot and let's see what can happen. my predecessor had done what a lot of people who should never be executives do. he appointed a commission to tell them how to straighten out of economy, but the commission was going to report after the election. the com
result in all kinds of new jobs. that has not happened. he said he was going to cut the deficit in half. that has not happened. the good news that we have somebody who is running for president that has the know-how. he has the experience. he has got the experience, the record, and he knows how to work with democrats, republicans cannot independents alike to address the challenges we face as a country, and that is why we need mitt romney in washington to fix what is broken and bring back the american dream. i see a uaw member here economy. autos. talk what go said barack obama that said were a few wars. one was about the auto industry. he said, you want to take those companies to bankruptcy. i supported a rescue package for the autos, but what obama said was not true. it was barack obama who took gm and chrysler through bankruptcy, ok? >> right? second, it was mitt romney who absolutely did provide for loan guarantees to ensure the warranties were backed up. that is what every fact checker who has looked at what obama said said he was wrong, he was not telling the truth. now, this is wha
's at stake in this election. now, change in the future where we reduce our deficit that's balanced and responsible. i signed a trillion dollars worth of spending cuts. i intend to do more. i'll work with both parties to streamline agencies and get rid of programs that don't work. if we're serious about the deficit, we've also got to ask the wealthiest americans to go back to tax rates they paid when bill clinton was in office because, as long as i'm president, i will never turn medicare into a voucher to pay for another millionaire's tax cuts. i will never allow the nation to be plunged into another battle over health care reform just so insurance companies can jump back into the driver's seat. and i will never allow politicians in washington to control health care choices that women should be making for themselves. so, wisconsin, we know what change is. we know what the future requires. we don't need a big government agenda or a small government agenda. we need a middle class agenda that rewards hard work and responsibility. we don't need a partisan agenda. we need a common sense
to reducing the deficit, there are two ways to reduce it. cuts and revenues. what would you cut, are the cut enough? >> it is not about real -- increasing our revenues. it is about growing the economy. we must extend our current tax rates personally. the job creators in this country, they tell me we need certainty. they do not understand what their tax bill will look like next year. let's give them so they can invest in inventory, and people. when that happens, that is how the economy grows. that is how jobs are created. that is how jobs will be available when students graduate in may. if we do not grow this economy and some of the plants my opponent has put forward will lead to job losses. his tax plan to raise taxes on those making too much as $50,000 and above, the revenue will fund 11 days of government operations. it will cost illinois alone 30,000 jobs. college students in bloomington, let alone the other eight universities and colleges in this district, cannot afford $30,000 -- 30,000 jobs leaving illinois. those are opportunities they will not have. >> candid gill. are cut enough? >>
. governor romney cutting the deficit with women in half in that state. his favorability in colorado has apparently flipped. if this whole thing comes down to colorado, will you guys have the turnout necessary to hold off a romney surge? >> yeah. you know, i don't believe this is going to come down to any one state. there are seven to nine states that are critical that are imbalanced, truly up for grabs. those poll numbers in the head-to-head contest don't surprise us. we said this would be a razor-thin, close election. i can tell you when we were on the ground and speak to women who understand what mitt romney has proposed in terms of politicians getting between their doctors and their tough decisions, we talk to young folks in that state. they are for president obama because they know he's got a vision for the future. both colorado and florida we are doing incredibly well getting out our vote early. >> patrick, thank you so much. we should note we will hear from your republican counterpart next hour. thank you, sir. >> thank you, craig. >> we are keeping a close eye on hurricane sandy
deficits when they propose $7 trillion in new spending between tax cuts for the well think and the pentagon spending for which they have no plan to pay. so saying you have a plan for the future doesn't mean you do. what he has is the one-point plan the president has been talking about, which is the same plan that got us into this mess in the first place. >> the main argument they're making, he did it in his opening remarks in the last debate and the closing remarks, is that more people are unemployed, more people are on foot stamps, more people are in poverty right now than they were four years ago, why re-elect a president who has a dismal record they say like this. >> the reason they're behind in this race, wolf, is because that's been their mantra from the beginning. everybody in this country knows where we were when this president took office and understands that we're in a better place now. we have more work to do. but the last thing we need to do is go back to the tax cuts for the well think, deregulating wall street, taking care of folks at the top. abandoning the middle class. that
in the deficit. he's not. he tried to veto many of those bills. he could not because the democrats controlled congress, and so he was forced, willy-nilly, if you're going to have a budget at all--and mr. clinton is going to discover this--you just have to go along, in the end, with congress. and he did not bankrupt the country. he did--he tried to control spending. he was just in too weak a position to do so. c-span: so you just wash your hands of any of the problems today that were brought about by supply-side economics. >> guest: well, the problems ex--they weren't brought about by supply-side economics. they were brought about, i would say, by irresponsible congressional expenditures. but it doesn't matter. the problems are real. i mean, they're with us. i mean, medicare, medicaid, things that originally were thought to involve the expenditure of perhaps a few billion dollars suddenly are s--going at the rate of tens of billions of dollars, which no one really anticipated, but which a thoughtful person might have-not anticipated, but say at some point, 'we have to take another look and che
. the only way to pay for it according to every expert in the country is increasing the deficit or raising taxes on the middle class and that's a real difference, and a real difference to the people of iowa who on average middle class families pay $3600 less in taxes as a result of the president's policies. but as we said earlier today, we didn't get their endorsement in the democratic primary in 2008, but we managed to soldier on. we'll soldier on here. we're confident we are going to win iowa. >> what about pennsylvania because democrats have been saying that it's solid, that they don't pay attention to polls showing that it's more in play, but now $2 million from restore our future from the super pac for mitt romney being invested into pennsylvania. is pennsylvania in play? >> i think that the romney campaign is trying to put it in play. they can't figure out how to get to 270 electoral votes they're losing in ohio. we are tied in florida and our ground game is turning out. they can't win without one of the states. they're trying to expand the map. they're going to be unsuccessful in do
and the deficit, the president's proposal was more realistic and it would have less of a shock to the system in the country and lead -- in that it would balance spending cuts. we like is more balanced approach to energy. we are in favor of obamacare. the editorial board was in favor of a public option so it did not go far enough for us. on social issues, immigration reform, women's rights, birth control, the editorial board aligns more with the president's policies. that is where we came down. we said that the voters are being asked by both candidates to take a leap of faith. given what we know about the previous four years, we decided that it was going to be an easier but to go with the president for four more. host: how many times have you seen president obama, governor romney, or their surrogates in your state? guest: president obama has been here eight times this year, governor romney has been here 6. paul ryan may be eligible to vote, he's been here that much. joe biden has been here once. we have had a lot of its from michelle obama. we have seen plenty of action this cycle. host: bill
to fiscal sustainability. the deficit reduction we need in the long run is to stablize the nation's debt load. what we need to do is very clear. that is the good news. the bad news is we have to execute on that. that will be difficult. that's why i think over the next three to six months as we work through these issues the numbers could be softer than we are experiencing now. businesses are going to be very concerned and worried about what is going to happen. >> i want to talk quickly about sandy. you made your estimate i think as the one being quoted the most about $50 billion. what about the impact on the national economy? >> you know, it's going to affect the monthly data so vehicle sales were soft. we already saw that because of the effects of the last few days of october. but by the end of the year certainly by spring this will all iron out. i don't think bottom line sandy is going to have a big impact on the national economy. it's not a game changer at any time. >> all right. mark zandi of moody's analytics the man we always turn to on these fridays. we're going to keep following t
that the first order of business is to get our deficits and debt under control. the good thing is there's a forcing mechanism. the bush tax cuts end at end of the year. we have the sequester looming. that wouldn't be the right way to do thing, takes a machete to something as opposed to a scalpel. after the election both democrats and republicans say this is something the country wants to solve. if i've won, then i believe that's a mandate for doing it in a balanced way. >> congresscomwoman if the president wins will they have to budge to raise taxes for the super wealthy to take care the debt? >> i think it's interesting to listen to his comments. basically the president's ideas on how to deal with an economy are an empty binder, if you will. we have brought forward item after item and suggestion after suggestion and bill after bill. we've passed bipartisan legislation in the house, and the senate won't take it up. what we need to do is make certain that we extend the bush tax cuts. we also want to go about closing some of the loopholes and primarily we have to cut federal spending. fed
with the debt and the deficit. i have talked to so many women who say the number one reason that they're voting for mitt romney is $16 trillion in debt. you know that i felt as if president bush and everyone has spent too much money and that the spending has to be dealt with. mitt romney has said that is a day one order for him, to work on getting that spending under control. and i think that because of that, election day you're going to see a romney win. >> marsha blackburn joining us this morning. thank you for joining us. >> good to see you. thank you. >>> coverage of election night in america we start at 6:00 pm eastern time. how about a question? not even a question. >> wow! >> wow! >> i have no power. >> i don't forgive you. ahead on "starting point" troops carrying patients down the stairs after backup power has failed at another new york city hospital. dr. sanjay gupta will join us live with that effort there. what if there was a new way to deal with money that focused less on fees and more... on what matters? maybe your bank account is taking too much time and maybe it's costing too mu
, and why? guest: we endorsed president obama. especially on the debt and the deficit, the president's proposal was more realistic and it would have less of a shock to the system in the country and lead -- in that it would balance spending cuts. we like is more balanced approach to energy. we are in favor of obamacare. the editorial board was in favor of a public option so it did not go far enough for us. on social issues, immigration reform, women's rights, birth control, the editorial board aligns more with the president's policies. that is where we came down. we said that the voters are being asked by both candidates to take a leap of faith. given what we know about the previous four years, we decided that it was going to be an easier but to go with the president for four more. host: how many times have you seen president obama, governor romney, or their surrogates in your state? guest: president obama has been here eight times this year, governor romney has been here 6. paul ryan may be eligible to vote, he's been here that much. joe biden has been here once. we have had a lot of
the deficit, tapping into domestic energy resources and fixing the nation's public school system. but one thing that he has been trying to zero in on in this final stretch of the campaign, he's been going after the president's mantel, being a post-partisan president. in the words of mitt romney, the president has been what he calls the most partisan. here's what he had to say. >> yesterday, the president said something you might have heard by now that i think surprised a lot of people. he said voting is the best revenge. he told his supporters, voting for revenge. vote for revenge? let me tell you what i'd like to tell you. vote for love of country. [ cheers and applause ] it is time we lead america to a better place. >> as for the rest of this weekend, mitt romney will be heading back to what is perhaps the ultimate battleground state of ohio, where polls show the gop nominee is trailing the president by anywhere between three and six points. he is also going to be hitting the state of pennsylvania, the state that the obama campaign says is not in play, but is increasingly looking like a
